I am trying to make my own petticoat and I am currently stumped as to how much fabric I need to put in it to make it poofy enough. I'm trying not to use stiff nylon netting for extra poof because I want it to be as comfortable as possible, but if need be, I will add it in.
Currently, I am looking at one botton layer of cotton, two layers of soft bridal tulle, one layer of organza and one top layer of a sheer embroidered fabric (that I dug out of my sewing box). It worries me as it doesn't look like it's going to be poofy enough despite having five layers. The bottom edge of the petti will be about 2 metres all around (1 metre measured flat) and I will probably be cutting it in a vaguely A-lined shape.
I only have one lousy BL petti and one K-star skirt (that I use as a petti) for comparison, so I would like to hear how wide your petti goes along the bottom edge and how many layers it has.
